Do you love Miyazaki movies? Do you want a small, low stress swap? Than this is the swap for you! You will be crafting ONE TINY THING based on one of the Miyazaki movies from studio Ghibli. The item should be smaller than 4 inches by 4 inches, although I won't be overly picky about it. And keep in mind that even if the item is small, it should be crafted with a good level of skill. Add details and make sure you're proud of it before sending it!

You will have only one partner and won't be allowed extras. Make sure to follow the preferences of your partner for your crafting. For example, if you haven't seen their all-time favorite Miyazaki movie, it would be nice to rent it to inspire you!

Also, you'll have to write at least once a week in the swap thread to let us know that you're still alive and crafting!

Here is a list of the Miyazaki movies from studio Ghibli:
- Nausicaš of the Valley of the Wind

I have seen only one movie that I know of, but it is a small swap so maybe I'll join in the end.

Ohhh this swap already makes me happy  :D I've seen almost every single Miyazaki movie and my son's room is Totoro themed (so maybe I finally have to share some pics here  ;)). So, I'll be signing up later today!

I'm in Europe and I don't mind sending to other continents at all (especially for these tiny swaps).

As much as I like anime, I've only seen three of his films *go figure*, but it's an OTT, so I can't resist!

OMG I want to join this swap so badly! I have to seriously consider the amount of time I can invest in a swap, though. I am moving and the big move day is the same as send-outs. I will have to see how much of my house I can get packed by the end of sign ups.

Hmmm...tempting. I promised myself no swaps cause the whole deadline thing was really getting me down. (Working with a deadline is so not my thing. I'm just now finishing my dad's Christmas gift.) Hmm...the send out day also happens to be Mr. Taco's birthday. Not really planning on crafting him anything for it though, so that's alright. Plus it's a OTT which are just so cool and it would totally give me an excuse to watch all the Miyazaki movies. (I've seen most of them.) Plus I don't work that much this coming month cause one of my labs is totally not busy.

Ahhh...what the hey...I'm in! Just not signing up yet cause I gotta figure out what I've seen and that.

I'm definitely going to join, but 1st I want to point out some missed movies.


Whisper of the Heart (one of my favorites) but maybe hard to find.
The Cat Returns
Pom Poko (a must watch)

I've seen all the movies and even went to a Ghibli museum display when I was in Japan.
 
Another must see Ghibli movie (Not Miyazaki) is
Grave of the fireflies (total tearjerker, amazing movie won awards)

I didn't know about whisper of the heart and Pom Poko... For The Cat Returns, I hesistated about adding it in the list or not since Wikipedia told me it isn't a studio Ghibli game... I'll try adding those later...

Couldn't sit through Grave of the Fireflies, I was crying too much after like half an hour!

Is Pom Poko the shapeshifting raccoons one?  I didn't realize that was Miyazaki o.O

Whisper of the Heart, The Cat Returns and Pom Poko aren't strictly Miyazaki movies, but were all by Stuido Ghibli. Whisper of the Heart was directed by Yoshifumi Kondo, but the screenplay was written by Miyazaki. The Cat Returns was driected by Hiroyuki Morita, I'm not sure who wrote the screenplay. Pom Poko was Isao Takahata.

Heh, sorry, I'm a bit of a Ghibli nerd.  ;D

For Pom Poko it says he created the story concept, so I thought that might count.
And The Cat Returns is related to Whisper of the Heart that's why I included that.

AC, you can ask your organizer for early feedback since your package has been received - I've done that a lot when I don't have room for a swap I want. :)

I say add the other movies, but maybe when adding quotes and favorite scenes add a second from the listed movies.
Just in case your partner isn't as Ghibli savvy.

Oh my gosh I have so many movies to watch. I love Miyazaki but have never seen any of his movies more than once, so it's hard to think of things like favorite quotes. Good think I don't work today. :) I have to crochet though, so it might be hard to crochet and read subtitles. Too bad I don't know Japanese.

Oh man, I am so in! However, I'm not sure if my previous craft swap is technically completed yet? Send-outs were on Saturday (the 19th). Do I have to wait until my partner has received her item before I can sign up for this swap? **newbie** I really hope I don't have to miss this one!

Yes, you have to wait until your partner receives their package.

I am going to have to wait for the next round :(  Both of my kids fell ill today so I am not getting much packing done. Unfortunately I am on a deadline to pack up my house, so I will have to pass on this swap (even though I don't want to!).  *pouty face*

We're now at 16 participants, woohoo!!!

I have to tell you that I probably won't be able to do the partnering on Saturday (the 26th)... I have to go visit my newborn nephew who lives 8 hours away from my house... Me and my boyfriend were supposed to go last weekend, but we ran into problems and it got postponed to next weekend...

It will be done on Sunday though, promise!

Can't wait to start the swap!!!!

Sent in my questionnaire... I'm new to anything Japanese but it's a new interest of mine... it all started with bento.  :)

I've only seen half of those movies... just watched Kiki's Delivery Service today and LOVED it!  I think that clinched my interest in this swap since I'd only seen Totoro and Castle in the Sky before today.

They have quite a few Miyazaki movies on iwatchnetwork.com.  megavideo and zshare are good links to use... but don't download anything because you don't have to!  ;)

I just want to remind you that I'll be out of town tomorrow and Saturday, with no access to Internet. You'll receive the questionnaire of your partner on Sunday (before noon if nothing goes wrong).

Can't wait to really start the swap!!!  :D

I just signed up today. It's super last minute but I couldn't miss this. Kiki's Delivery Service is one of my favorite movies of all time. I have to say, I did list The Cat Returns in my favorite movies, even if it doesn't technically count. It's not my fault, the Baron is just too cool :O

We'll be watching Pompoko tonight and have been listening to film music all morning to be in the right atmospheres for this craft  ;)
Can't wait to see what I can make for my partner!

I just signed up today. It's super last minute but I couldn't miss this. Kiki's Delivery Service is one of my favorite movies of all time. I have to say, I did list The Cat Returns in my favorite movies, even if it doesn't technically count. It's not my fault, the Baron is just too cool :O
Miyazaki did do art direction for The Cat Returns so I think it kind of counts. You are correct, the Baron is just so cool! Very dashing!

I've been stacking up all my Miyazaki movies (which is a lot now) so I am prepared to watch them when I get my partner! So super excited!

I just watched Ponyo on Netflix.  SUPER CUTE!!!  I love the cliche Miyazaki everything-resolved-in-the-last-5-minutes ending XD  Wish I could've seen it in Japanese with English subtitles though :/

I have a partner!!! 

Yay! I came home earlier than expected, so I had time to do the partnering, I'm really happy about this!!!

Soooo, you should all have your partner's questionnaire, PM me if there is a problem with anything!!!

Remember to post at least once a week in the thread, just to let us know you're alive and keep us posted on how the crafting is doing. I won't be picky over this, but I still want to be able to keep tabs on eneryone.

The send-out date is March 26th! (When you send, don't forget to PM me and your partner to let us know.)

HAVE FUN CRAFTING!!!

Thanks Rousseline! After reading through my partners likes, I already have the perfect thing for her, and now I just need to craft around that base.

Yay partners! Shy was also my partner in the OTT Zelda swap and then she made me awesome things that I still use very often, so I've PM'd her and I'm looking forward to exchange some nice stuff again!

P.S. If we choose to swap more than one item, can we post pics in our gallery or should it be in the private swap thread?

My partner is super cool and I've allready figured out what I'm going to craft for her (baring something major getting in the way of my plans). I need to watch Castle in the Sky to get started on one of them, but the VHS is somewhere buried under a bucnh of junk in the TV room. :P

Watching Howl's Moving Castle again... and remembered that the reason I liked it so much is because young Sophie is voiced by Emily Mortimer, one of my fav English actresses.  I recognized her voice immediately... otherwise, it might not have caught my attention.

Went to the video store to rent Spirited Away and Howl's Moving Castle... and both of them were already rented! Well, at least it gives me an occasion to see Porco Rosso for the first time!

Porco Rosso is great, you'll definitely like it.

I'm almost done with my item, but I'm an extras maniac so I'll probably be crafting right up to the deadline anyway.

  I worked up a prototype for my item. Now I've got to get the actual thing done. I've got to shrink it, so that it's more 'tiny', and less 'average' size.

Believe it or not, but we have a sender already  :o !!! So I created the Gallery: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=374605.0

Even if there is a sender, don't feel any pressure, you have until March 26th to send!

I want to make a quick recall concerning sending:

1) When you send, let me and your partner know by PM. If you are in the US, you have to get a DC number and communicate it to me.

2) Take pictures before you send, just in case!

3) When you receive, you also have to tell me and your partner by PM too, so we know that the package arrived safely.

4) Post pictures of what you receive. If there is a problem and you cannot do it, ask your partner if he can do it for you.  

That's it!  :D

I got a couple of questions about extras so I want to clarify it here, in case someone else isn't sure about that! This swap is for one tiny thing. That's what's asked of you and what you have an obligation to send to your partner. If you and your partner agree on it, you can do extras (either more items, supplies, candy, etc.) This is a decision taken between partners and you can always refuse to do extras if you don't want to/don't have the time/etc.

Some swaps have a "no extras" rule, but I wanted to let you the possibility to do extras if you wanted to.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to PM me!  :D

I think I have found the picture I want to use for my item. Problem is, I don't know if I can get it small enough to fit the rules on size and I don't know if the _______ I plan to put on it will ruin the picture or not. I guess there's only one way to find out...

Oh, question, Rousseline, I know you said there was no need to be picky about sizes, but I just have to check. Most of mine will be 4"x4", but I forgot to measure in allowance for the ______, so there will be parts that will probably go beyond by, erm, around an eighth of an inch on all sides. Is that ok?

Mine's.... small. I don't know that it's 'tiny'. I didn't measure it, but it looks like it might be 4x4". It's a lot smaller than the first one I made, so that's got to count for something, right?

There's no problem with that for me. The idea is really to have something small, I wouldn't bother if it's a little bit larger.  :)

I was so close to being done but I couldn't quite finish before leaving for spring break >.<  Didn't want to worry about losing things in my traveling so my partner has to wait another week now :(

I have to find the right picture online and print it off. After that, construction should be fast and easy. I just hope I can find the picture I'm looking for.:P

I haven't worked on my OTT this weekend, boo me. But I will be working on it this week. I'm about a third of the way done, I think. I keep thinking I want it for myself too. Haha. I'll just take lots of pictures before sending, I guess.

I'm waiting for the final touch to be finished (she says, trying not to give too much away) and it will be sent in a couple days.

This has been super challenging and fun, for sure!

The 26th is the deadline, but you can send before the deadline if you're done early. If  you don't send early there's no problem, you just need it out by the 26th or you'll get feedback noting that you were a late sender.

Well, not all of us are on Craftster 24-7.  Oh wait, yes we are.   ;D  My partner received over a week ago and shows no indication of posting photos.   :'(

I'm done! Did not expect to take this long to craft something so small. Hopefully knitpurl likes it too. It's got some iffy parts that I'm not too happy about, but as a whole I think it's kinda cute. I'll be sending tomorrow because I have no way of getting to the PO today.

Here's a teaser for my partner:

So...I thought I was going to be able to send Tuesday, until I realized that my new printer doesn't come with the USB cord to connect it to my laptop. I get paid tomorrow, so I guess I'm making a Walmart run before I can print and send my item. I promise it will get sent out on time!

Have I mentioned that I'm TERRIFIED that I haven't packed yours well enough?  I am.  Terrified.  It should be absolutely fine but unreasonable swap anxiety has settled upon me.  If it comes broken I will send you like, three things to make up for it.  But it shouldn't be broken.. I'm a mess.

Maybe they threw the postcard in the normal mail because they know where the house is... But, don't they have a GPS at UPS?? It doesn't look like they made much of an effort to find the destination!
